Sennelier is nestled between the Art School in the St. Germaine des Pres area and The Louvre… an ideal local. When I visited Sennelier on my first trip to Paris, it was an experience… there were many many drawers of pastels… the expensive “toys” there were way above my budget… the employees all wore lab coats… and the building felt … very historic and… I could feel the heavy artistic history weighing on me. It was exhilarating and strange at the same time.
